What is FATCA?
FATCA is Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act, a law enacted by USA in 2010. According to this law, any individual who is resident of USA (citizens or green card holders) or financially connected to the US or have any tax residency in US have to declare all their foreign income and investment details to US Tax Authorities. The law was enacted to prevent tax evasion through offshore investments by US residents.
India is signatory of the above law and hence all the financial entities like Banks, Insurance Companies, Mutual Funds, Brokerages, etc have to furnish their client information to the Indian Government, which in turn would share it with US Government. In case you have no income connection with USA, you are not impacted but still need to give the declaration.

Yes its a badly designed form. Fill your PAN number in TIN details. Just click on each cell and it will tell you what to fill up
ya true … badly designed
it also demand a zip code of FATCA state …
i have no option left but to fill up my city pin code
I am registering on NPS for my mother but I am also stuck on FATCA details. I dont have any clue what to fill on these tabs. can any one tell me. I have filled PAN no as TIN no but what about Address,Validity,FATCA state,City and Zip code Kindly guide me. I have called to helpline(02240904242) no so many times but they don’t respond at all.
Just put your address in state/city, etc
Thanks a lot Mr Amit. But about Validity? FATCA is asking validity in DD/MM/YYYY format and we have validity of PAN as Active/Inactive only.
put any distant future date. leave blank in case not compulsory field
